I've been meaning to go to Zen for quite a while. A few of us eventually made the trip there, and I wasn't disappointed. The decor was brilliant, and there's ample space for indoor and outdoor seating. Since that time, we've been there multiple times, only for their Asian food. One time we... read more

We had a private room for a lunch for 10pax. The room was beautifully organised. The food was great and the waiters assigned to us attentive. Just what you need for a perfect Sunday lunch! The restaurant is popular so reservation highly recommended and getting there early if you want parking close by.
